Who We Are
The Haas Healthcare Association (HHA) is a student-run organization of MBA candidates and other UC Berkeley graduates focusing on the business and healthcare.
HHA aims to be the healthcare hub at UC Berkeley, helping students strengthen their depth and breadth of knowledge and experience in the industry. HHA helps students advance their careers in healthcare by providing education on a wide range of healthcare topics and fostering lifelong connections between their peers and industry professionals.
